Try white vinegar for removing calcium deposits.

Are calcium deposits created from normsl saltwater tanks or tanks that were not well kept...?

Calcium deposits can come from SW tank, I think.

CL has some amazing deals, if I must say.

Even my local paper has some good ads. I found 2 40 gallon fish tanks+stand for $150 each OBO.

its great you got a new tank and that is a great price
make sure the wood stand is strong, not rotted and not broken before filling the fish tank with water
I wouldnt worry about the deposits unless they block the view on the front glass or are numerous.
get them a little wet and u can probably scrape them off with a flat razor if you really want to but dont damage the corner seals or scratch the glass.

I'm actually going to put the tank in my wall cubby where my 10 gal currently is.. Will use the stand for my 20 gal... Will for sure check it out to be sure... Thanks for the suggestion...
The guy was selling because his apt complex allows up to 20 gallons and the apt mgr walked by his open door one day and saw it... After inspection, it had to go...

There might be some concern about the wooden stand because of the clipped front corners and a tank hanging over them.

A trick my husband uses is a blade to get all the tough,stuck on calcium.Just be careful and not scratch your glass.Good luck on the set up with your new tank!
